Suggest a versatile condensed grotesque, please
0

I'm looking for a versatile and (dare I say it) modern condensed grotesque, mainly for headlines and shorter texts.

I need:

- upper and lowercase
- italics
- A few weights would be nice
- the ability to use as a webfont.

I've been using this as a "placeholder" for now:

Any suggestions?

Best regards
Mads

A modern bold condensed grotesque style is impossible.
It’s the Ur-sans, after all.
The present vogue for this style strikes me as very retro.

Tablet Gothic.

It's expensive but I'll tell you, it works hard for its money. Mind you, if you're only doing headlines the whole family might be overkill. I'm finding the narrow and regular to work very well at small sizes.

The oblique hasn't yet made it to myfonts.

EDIT:
Tablet Gothic isn't as straight-sided as your example typeface. But that's one of the things that actually makes it versatile.

EDITx2:
Maybe you're looking for a free font. Sorry, if that's the case. Don't steal.
